Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala
Do I need a special tool to replace the accessory belt on my
2006 Chevolet Impala? On other cars I could use a
1/2 or 3/8 breaking bar.
No special tools are required in order to replace your belt. Your vehicle is equipped with a serpentine belt system which means that it uses one big belt to drive all of the accessories. With that being said, all you have to do is place the closed end of a wrench (not sure exactly what size) over the bolt on the front of the tensioner pulley and use it as a lever to push the tensioner away from the belt. once the tension is relieved continue to hold the wrench in place and use your free hand to pull the belt away from the tensioner pulley. After the belt is clear of the pulley slowly let off on the wrench and remove the belt from the remaining pullies. Reverse the process to reinstall the new belt.
